Brief Biography

Thomas Rogers (1540–1611) was an associate of Shakespeare's father, both serving on the borough corporation's council. John Harvard was baptised on 29 November 1607, in St Saviour's Southwark, the second son of Robert Harvard, butcher, and his second wife Katherine, the daughter of Thomas Rogers of Stratford-upon-Avon, a substantial butcher, maltster and grazier. It was Thomas who, after the Stratford fire of 1594 rebuilt the house which now bears the name of his grandson.

Comments:

  • from Jim Wallace, 5 December 1998: "A large number of references to Thomas Rogers and Margaret Pace can be found, but it appears there is a great deal of confusion between Thomas Rogers and Thomas Matthew Rogers (son of Bernard Rogers) who must be different individuals. must be different individuals. Marriages are also given to Alice Calle, and Elizabeth Porter. Thomas Matthew Rogers appears to have had children: Edmund, William, George, John and Thomas. It would appear that the two are related as follows (but this needs confirmation from original documentation):
  • Thomas John Rogers - Margery Wyatt
  • William Rogers - Matilda England
  • Thomas Rogers - Margaret Pace
  • John Rogers - Adrianna de Pratt
  • Bernard Rogers
  • Thomas Matthew Rogers
  • Hal Bradley, Bradley/Opp Ancestry, RootsWeb's WorldConnect Project, 3 February 2004. Thrice married:
  1. 27 November 1561 to Elizabeth Potter (1541 - ), child Margaret Rogers.
  2. 31 January 1563 to Margaret Pace (1541 - ), eleven children: Elizabeth, Charles, Joan, Alice, Joanna, Joyce, Alice, Richard, William, and Edward.
  3. 5 November 1581 to Alice Calle (1553 - ), children: Thomas, Katherine, Thomas, Rose, and Frances.

The Parish Registers of Stratford upon Avon commence Anno 1558. By the kind permission of the Vicar, the Rev. George Arbuthnot, M.A., I was enabled to devote the whole of one day, from the close of the morning service to the beginning of the afternoon service, to an examination of them. I took notes of the following marriages:

  • 1562 January 31, Thomas Rogers and Margaret Pace.
  • 1563 November 27, Henry Rogers and Elizabeth Burback.
  • 1566 July 6, Edward Huntington and Matilda Rogers.
  • 1570 October 15, John Rogers and Anne Salsbury.
  • 1579 July 20, William Rogers and Elizabeth Walker.
  • 1581 October 30, Richard Rogers and Susanna Castell.
  • 1581 November 5, Richard Rogers and Ales Calle.
  • 1592 (?3) December 30, Antherin Russell and Joyce Rogers.
  • 1596 November 21, William Rogers and Jone Tante.
  • 1600 October 28, John Nelson to Elizabeth Rogers.
  • 1602 April 13, Lewes Rogers to Joane Rodes.
  • 1602 October 12, Francis Rogers to Elizabeth Sperpoint.
  • 1603 (4) January 1, William Smith to Ales Rogers.
  • 1605 "Apriell 8, Robertus Harwod to Katherina Rogers."
  • 1608 (9) February 6, Henry Stanton to Phillip Rogers.
  • 1609 July 18, Thomas Chestley to Margaret Rogers.

Pg.181

I looked through the record of the marriages down to 1637 inclusive, and found a few other Rogers marriages, which it hardly seems worth the while to print. Thomas, Henry, John, William and Richard Rogers had numerous children baptized and buried. Of these I pick out the children of Thomas.

 Baptized.                                        
  • Margaret, September 26, 1562.
  • Elizabeth, October 28, 1563.
  • Charles, March 28, 1565.
  • Johanna, January 24, 1566 (7).
  • Alice, September 2, 1568.
  • Joanna, October 14, 1571.
  • Joyce, February 9, 1572 (3).
  • Ales, September 11, 1574.
  • Richard, November 10. 1575.
  • William, June 8, 1578.
  • Edward, February 18, 1579.
  • Thomas, July 22, 1582.
  • Katherin, November 25, 1584.
  • Thomas, June 11, 1587.
  • Rose, March 29, 1590.

Buried.

  • Margaret, December 1, 1562.
  • Johanna, February 21, 1566 (7).
  • Alice, October 3, 1568.
  • Anne, Jul 24, 1581.
  • Thomas, August 13, 1584.
  • "Infant," Janurary 15, 1591.
  • Charles Rogers. "Homo" March 30, 1609 (10).
  • Thomas Rogers, August 31, 1639.

The burial of Margaret, the wife of Mr. Rogers, I did not find. He evidently married again; for I found the burial of "Alice Wyf to Mr Thomas Rogers," August 17, 1608. His own burial is thus given:

1610 (11) February 20, Thomas Rogers, one of the Aldermen.
